|Benzinho, Part 1|
“Benzinho” is a traditional two-part choro in the key of D minor written by the great choro mandolinist Jacob do Bandolim. It’s not one of the most popular choros, but it is often played at rodas de choros (choro jam sessions) and it's a good tune for players new to choro, because the harmony is very clear, and it’s not too difficult technically. Ian walks you through the melody of the first part of “Benzinho” in this video.
